This is probably one of the lightest Earl Grey-type teas that I’ve had. Not a bad thing, since some can be quite overpowering. It’s my favorite, no-frills Earl Grey. This is another purchase from my visit to the Charleston Tea Plantation.
I think I’ve said it before, but there is definitely a distinct taste to these Charleston-grown teas. I can almost taste that it was grown in the South; it’s got some quality that makes it perfect for sipping on the porch and letting the day drift by. I would love to be at the tea plantation today, curled up in one of their rocking chairs on their front porch, simply staring out onto the tea fields.
